Home Minister P. Chidambaram is the latest to comment that RSS is behind Baba Ramdev. Chidambaram mentioned that RSS has passed resolution against corruption and decided to support all individuals and organisations who fight against corruption. The irony here is that IF RSS DECIDED TO FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION, WHAT IS WRONG IN IT?

Here is a media report, have a glance:
New Delhi, June 8, 2011: Home Minister P. Chidambaram on Wednesday alleged that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was behind Baba Ramdev’s anti-corruption campaign.
“I think you should know who is behind Baba Ramdev. Go back to March 2011. At a meeting at Puthur in Karnataka, the Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha, which is the apex body of the RSS, decided to support all organisations and individuals that will raise the fight against corruption. on April two, the RSS had announced the formation of an anti-corruption front in which Baba Ramdev was the patron,” he said in an interview to Doordarshan.
On media coverage
Mr. Chidambaram said a section of the media was engaged in “competitive populist coverage” of the protests movement of Anna Hazare, Baba Ramdev and others and maintained that it undermined parliamentary democracy.
“I think sections of the media, for reasons which I can’t spell out, are engaged in competitive populist coverage of these movements. This undermines parliamentary democracy,” he said.
The Home Minister said he supported the civil society speaking against corruption by raising their voice.
“But I don’t support elected representatives yielding their obligations and responsibilities to civil society representatives. Let us remember that the foundation of this country is parliamentary democracy,” he said.
